March 3, 2016 - Troymet Exploration Corp. (TSXV: TYE) (“Troymet” or the Company”)
is pleased to update progress on its exploration projects. Troymet
operates the Redhill and Golden Eagle projects in British Columbia and
the Wildcat project located in Utah. Hudbay Minerals Inc. operates the
McClarty Lake VMS project in Manitoba (Hudbay 60%; Troymet 40%).
Troymet plans drilling programs on the Redhill and Wildcat projects. Both are considered to have high discovery potential.
Troymet is fully funded (+$1,000,000) for its proposed drill programs on the Redhill and Wildcat projects.
Wildcat Project (Gold-Silver)
An application for a permit to conduct a 2016 drill program on the
Wildcat project was submitted to the State of Utah and the Bureau of
Land Management (BLM) in January 2016. Troymet is awaiting approval of
the permit. Planning for a drill program is well advanced.
Troymet’s 2015 field program successfully identified numerous
prospective structural drill targets along the Joy Fault and in cross
cutting structures. The Company has documented exploration progress on
the Wildcat project in a series of news releases issued between November
10, 2015 and February 17, 2016. The news releases can be found on the
Company’s website at www.troymet.com/news/2016.
Troymet’s exploration focus is gold and silver mineralization in
veins, stockworks, breccias and bulk-tonnage deposits along the Joy
Fault, and in structural/stratigraphic hosts in Cambrian carbonate
Redhill Project (Copper-Gold-Zinc-Silver VMS)
Troymet has received a British Columbia Mines Act multi-year permit
for its proposed 2016 diamond drilling and geophysical program on the
Alpha and Beta zones. The Company’s 2015 field program identified
several volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) targets associated with
interflow horizons within a stacked sequence of felsic volcanics. The
undrilled targets have associated electromagnetic (EM) conductors and
copper- and zinc-in-soil anomalies.
Troymet’s re-assay of an intersection in an historic drill hole (DDH
RH06-25) returned 8.75% copper, 4.75% zinc, 1.22 g/t gold and 61.19 g/t
silver over 2.04 metres. This intersection, which remains un-bracketed,
confirms the prospectivity of the un-drilled VMS targets.
In addition, a new +1,000m trend of elevated to anomalous gold-in-soil values was identified.
Troymet plans a reconnaissance, induced polarization survey over the
strongest EM anomalies, the high-grade intersection in hole RH06-25 and
the new +1,000m gold soil anomaly to help in targeting prior to
Troymet has documented exploration progress on the Redhill project in
a series of news releases issued between September 2, 2015 and December
1, 2015. The news releases can be found on the Company’s website at www.troymet.com/news/2016.
Golden Eagle Project (Gold-Silver)
Troymet is continuing to monitor the potential to develop a
significant and shallow gold-silver resource in the Skarn prospect,
especially at this time of rising gold prices. Historic drilling in 1990
and 1997 was limited to an area 265 m long and intersections ranged
from 2.12 g/t Au over 9.9 m to 7.64 g/t Au over 3.5m. Only visually
obvious mineralization was assayed and no drill core exists today from
this drilling. In 2011, Troymet drilled one hole (N11-06) to test the
northern limit of the area of historic drilling. The hole collared in
mineralization and cut a wide, structurally controlled zone comprising
high-grade veining and lower-grade host rock:
- 1.27 g/t Au over 36.45m (open)
- incl. 4.13 g/t over 3.5 m
- and 6.0 g/t over 1.0 m
- 4.05 g/t Ag over 15.45 m (upper part of the gold zone)
- Mineralization outcrops and is open along strike and at depth
- Untested anomalous soils and rock chips over ~1,000m
This intersection demonstrated the potential for high-grade,
sub-cropping, bulk-tonnage gold mineralization that was not recognized
in the past. A compilation of the pertinent exploration data can be
viewed at: Skarn Prospect.
McClarty Lake Project (Copper-Zinc-Gold VMS)
As previously announced (news release dated December 15, 2015),
Hudbay Mining Inc., the Joint Venture operator, has advised Troymet that
it plans to conduct ground geophysical surveys over newly staked
targets once ice conditions permit.
Under the terms of the Joint Venture Agreement, Hudbay must
contribute $1,151,052 in joint venture expenditures before Troymet is
required to fund its participating interest.
